“Great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Nice open feeling, attentive staff. We had 2 delicious salads. The goat cheese ravioli was tasty, nicely done with a light asparagus sauce - large portions.

“Great food - greater service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I ate here a lot before it was the Grill. Their renovations make it a great place for dinner with friends or even better with families. There are lots of nooks and crannies for seating. The menu speaks for itself. And the staff was really wonderful. So nice to see smiles ont he faces of the servers.

Very nice decor, friendly staff. Great happy hour, good food and beer. Wine as in most places is too overpriced but the happy hour beer prices were good.

“Not walnut grill anymore.....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

This is not the walnut grill anymore, something called "Up",but not very good. Went for a late lunch and it was almost empty so you think service would be good. Wrong. A bar drink came poorly made and sent back and sandwiches never came after waiting over half hour and asking about them. So we left.......don't think we will go back. They should have left the Walnut Grill as it was. Oh yeah, I had asked for something on my sandwich and the haughty chef said it would not be good, but it was how I wanted it! Maybe the mayo on the side baffled them, perhaps.

They have a menu that is unlike most places. You can get different, out of the ordinary dishes here that will amaze you.
